Subject: RE: BS: Broken Government Pledges
I'm sorry folks, my prediction is from observing, disinterestedly, the man's career. Not any form of wishing!

Boris is a survivor. He is a buffon, a blunderer, a clown, a chancer, a turncoat. He will say many things to achieve his goal. Because it has worked, he will be emboldened.

But he is a survivor. And a lucky one at that. Had he been up against a far more personable (and pragmatic) leader of his opposition, things might have been different.

At the end of the day, politicians have to promise to get elected, and the reality turns out to be more difficult. But that shouldn't stop us chiding them for being brash.

The knives are always out, but they are blunted by Borish having delivered for the party.

If you want Borish gone, be prepared for the long haul. Though E&OE - we ARE living in interesting times. Lay your bets, but make them small!
